2. Could the Brewers fix playoff struggles by making a rotation addition?
Another path the Brewers could take to fixing their team and giving them a chance against the younger and more talented offensive teams is making a solid rotation even better. If the Brewers were to go after one of the offseason's top starting pitchers, it wouldn't be a surprise.
If the Brewers were able to add one or two great arms, they have enough regular season offense to consistently win and put themselves in a better playoff position. The answer to fixing this team isn't easy when you look at the lineups they are going up against.
It isn't as simple as adding one piece and catching up with the Dodgers or Braves. The Brewers need to be creative and perhaps the best path isn't the most obvious, but focusing on your bullpen and rotation could make sense. Attempting to land another top of the rotation arm to give the team a better chance to hang with these top offenses come postseason time is a possibility.
In a dream world, while a certain Los Angeles Angels free agent is likely out of the Brewers price range, the star player would instantly put the team back in the National League conversation and be the missing piece for both the lineup and rotation.
